I-Macs and windows domains - few questions.
Good afternoon Forum,
well after several days of work, I've finally got my nice shiny imacs working on my domain, with an apple X-serve to apply preferences to them and image them with. So far so good, preferences are working and applying, logons are quick and everything is working fine.
However there's a few things I can't seem to figure out.
1) Is it posible to get Safari to transparently authenticate to our proxy, at the moment it prompts for a username and password when a student starts safari.
2) is it possible to mount a shared folder for all students. I've tried adding a group folder, but that doesn't seem to work - it just comes up with a question mark in the dock. Our student shared folder is shared as \\SERVER\STUSHARED$\ from a windows server
3) I applied application restrictions to the workstations, but kept getting an error 'you are not allowed to run application "student" " or something like that at login. I think the program in question may be the lanschool client, except I can't find the correct application to add to the allowed list to stop this error (I've tried searching for it) anyone have any idea where lanschool hides its self on a mac?
4) I would like to ensure the papercut client starts when the students logon, any idea how I can add an item so it starts up at login for every student?
I'm not that brilliant with macs, this is the first time I've used them on a network environment, so as simple steps as possible if anyone can help me. :)
